\(Well,\; square\; meters\; or\; cubic\; meters\; are\; simply\; m*m,\)
\(so\; our\; nice\; "a\; lot\; of\; millions"mm^{3},\; means\; x_{mm}\cdot y_{mm}\cdot z_{mm}\; and\; as\; each\; of\; these\; mm\; has\; a\; conversion\; of\; \frac{1}{1000},\)
\(the\; whole\; pack\; will\; need\; a\; reduction\; of\; 10^{9}\; ,\; 9\; zeros,\; to\; become\; m^{3}.\)
\(Answer\; \mbox{E}.\)
\(Hope\; it\; helps.\;\) \(:)\)

The trick here maybe to just drop the ugly numbers and transform 1,463,000 cubic mm into 1,000,000 cubic mm just to understand the logic behind. If volume of a cube equals \(10^6\) cubic mm and the formula is side * side * side, we can infer that the side measures \(10^2\) mm, or 100 mm. And 100 mm = 0.1 mt. Therefore the side measures 0.1 mt. In volume, this would be represented as 0.1 mt * 0.1 mt * 0.1 mt, which yields 0.001 cubic mt. The answer choice should have 2 zeroes between the point and the first decimal different to zero.

A) 14.63 B) 1.463 C) 0.1463 D) 0.01463 E) 0.001463 Since we are converting from cubic millimeters to cubic meters, we have to adjust the conversion. (1 millimeter)^3 = (0.001 meter)^3 (1 millimeter)^3 = 0.000000001 meter^3 Thus, 1,463,000 cubic millimetres = 0.000000001 x 1,463,000 = 0.001463 cubic meters Answer: E

Hope this helps you!
